Coaxial Cables

Wilson cables are used to connect your amplifier with antennas, splitters, and other accessories. Cables differ based on thickness, impedance, connector type, length, and sometimes color.  Shorter and thicker cables are preferred to minimize signal loss. WILSON400 is our lowest loss, thickest cable, followed by RG-6, RG-58 and RG-174.


Wilson400 (LMR400 equivalent) is our thickest cable. WILSON400 comes with N-Male connectors. This 13/32 inch thick cable has signal loss of 0.6dB per 10 feet. Different lengths and colors are available for easier residential and commercial installations. 500-foot and 1000-foot spools require separate N-Male crimp connectors and freight shipping. Cables offered are 2-feet (952302, 952402), 10-feet (952310, 952410), 20-feet (952320, 952420), 30-feet (952330, 952430), 50-feet (952350, 952450), 75-feet (952375, 952475), 100-feet (952300, 952400), 500-feet (952305) and 1000-feet (952301).
